"Non-residential transactions enjoy post-election bounce" : West One Loans comments on HMRC figures PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 21 July 2015

Short-term lender West One Loans comments on today's HMRC Property Transaction figures.

Duncan Kreeger, director of West One Loans, said: “It’s not just the housing market that is enjoying a post-election bounce, with non-residential transactions enjoying almost double the monthly improvement. On an annual level the contrast is even more marked, with an increase almost three times larger than the mainstream residential market.

“This shows that it is not just homeowners wanting to take advantage of the current favourable economic climate and low interest rates on offer, but businesses and developers too. With Bank of England Governor Mark Carney suggesting last week that interest rates could rise around the turn of the year, it makes sense for individuals – and commercial ventures – to act soon if they want to capitalise on the current situation.”
